Advantages: Easy to use, does everything youd expect it too.
So i was about to start a degree and my previous laptop was 9 years old, barley functioning! It was time to invest. Id decided before i went to browse that there would be no budget as it was essential for my work. After some help from one of the shop assistant i decided this was the laptop for me. Costing £350 from PC World. (Admittidley, the fushia pink colour did sway me when deciding between the final two - It also comes in violet purple.)
I use the laptop for Degree work - after buying microsoft office spereatley, keeping in contact with friends and family and photo development/enhancement. I use the laptop almost every day and it handles all these tasks faultlessly. Its fast running, has a long battery life, lightweight, nice bright screen and all the added features i need. (in built webcam, microphone etc.)
The laptop itself was easy to set up once i got it home. Simple instructions were given on screen and basic setup took approximatley 15 minutes to complete. I managed to install microsoft office, Norton Antivirus and my printer/scanner with no trouble from the laptop itself. The only thing that took a little while getting used to was the textured mouse pad, (but that is being really picky!)
Ive had the computer now for just over a year and never had any problems. Over the year the only 'maintainance' its had is a filter clean using a simple presurised air can through the vents. (The laptop showed no signs of needing maintainance however ive always looked after my computers with little procedures such as this one.)
Overall BRILLIANT device :)
Summary: Would definatley reccommend, Makes doing a degree that little bit easier :)
